    Some people have found a way to make most game work with the powerful emulator No$GBA 1.9! Here are some screenshots from Zelda: The Four Swords in-game! For those who don't know anything about No$GBA, I suggest to read today's news!

    Post your comments and pictures in this thread!

    Here is a short tutorial:
    - run No$GBA.exe
    - pick a GBA image (no ZIP)
    - go to "Options" / "Emulation setup"
    - increase the number of "Emulated Gameboys"
    - in "Link Gamepaks", set "Gamepaks in all GBA"
    - in "Reset/Startup Entrypoint", set "GBA BIOS (Nintendo logo")
    - put the GBA BIOS file in the emulator's folder, and rename it to "gba.rom"
    - click OK, you should then see 2 GBA screens side by side
    - right click on the left window, click on "Link" so that the window comes back to normal.
    - then redo the right-click and click "Link" , and here we go, the 2nd gameboy does boot!
    Also check that you have the right version of the GBA BIOS (there are 2 different dumps).
    Enjoy [​IMG]

    TyrianCubed you must rename the .sav file from VBA to the rom name of the rom you are using
    then put it in the BATTERY sub dir of No$GBA

    open the game in VBA and export the sav into the Batery folder of the No$GBA

    for me this method wored perfectly (i tried it with Megaman 4)

    P.S a tipp ) i made a sav with the No$ and copied the name to my exported VBA Sav

    How do you change the colors to the original colors you see in VBA. I don't like LCD. [​IMG]
